If you need Motorway Services around Gloucester or Bristol forget Michael Wood and Strensham.
The new Gloucester Services both North Bound & South Bound are open. They are owned PRIVATELY by the same people that own the UKs first privately owned services at Tebay in Cumbria.
Fantastic farm shop? Butchers, fish mongers, deli, artisan cheese, fresh veg - Boar Cigars etc. etc. etc. I cannot praise these services enough. Everything fresh ie Butchers produce is sourced within 30 miles wherever possible and is of exceptional quality for the price.
Bought a Rump Steak on offer for under £12-00 (cut within 10 minutes by Butcher) - served three (two with not so big appetites and me who likes a horse) - loads - tender, tasty and moreish. Check out their pies - unusual and homemade.
Staff are like Waitrose - cannot do enough. ENJOY.
Be aware - you will spend money.
Cannot recommend this more highly.
